CBD FOR WOMEN
We’ll start with the one everyone knows: CBD alleviates period pain. Yes, that’s true. But it’s not the whole story. CBD can be used to manage period pain, nausea, moodiness, post-partum symptoms, menopause and endometrial cancer, just to name a few.
CBD FOR THERAPEUTIC RELIEF
Roughly 20% of adults suffer from some form of anxiety. Regular use of CBD has been proven to reduce anxiety, stress + depression in all forms: topicals, sublinguals and vapor. Explore the benefits.
CBD FOR STRESS RELIEF
As a neuroprotective agent, CBD is known to assist with symptoms and results of neurological disorders and hormonal changes, without harmful consequences. Vaporizing oil diffuses the medicinal benefits of CBD directly into your bloodstream – meaning you’ll feel it faster and stronger.
CBD FOR PEACE + CALM
Mentally, we’ve got a lot going on all the time. And we didn’t get the easiest deal either: Women are twice as likely to suffer from anxiety + anxiety-related issues than men. Many women report that regular use of CBD oil results in a general sense of happiness.
CBD FOR MUSCULAR RELIEF
CBD salves are comprised of CBD oil + other plant and essential oils that work together to facilitate healing. From HIIT workouts to Pilates, new shoes or carrying children, we’ve all got a reason to be sore. But here’s the thing – we don’t have to be.
CBD + YOU
No signs of toxicity or serious side effects havebeen observed following chronicadministration of cannabidiol (CBD) to healthyvolunteers. CBD affects people differently, all starting withthe body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) —the system that helps regulate sleep, appetite,mood, motor control, immune function,pleasure, pain, reproduction and fertility,memory and temperature regulation.
While the human body naturally producesendocannabinoids, the effects of CBD on thebody vary person to person:
Only 20% of humans have a healthy ECS with high levels ofanandamide — the “bliss” molecule.
Since CBD replaces naturally occurring endocannabinoids,those with greater “bliss” levels are less likely to feel the effectsof CBD since their body already produces the intended results.
Diet, stress + lifestyle influence endocannabinoid levels.Estrogen may enhance sensitivity to cannabis — particularly 1-2days prior to ovulation when estrogen has peaked and beginsto fall.
Individuals who have deprived levels of endocannabinoids willmost likely produce a favorable experience. Knowing this, W!NKwas strategically designed to help ease side effects of femalespecificconditions.
Using cannabis as a treatment provides a different experiencethan using cannabis recreationally. When fighting off anailment, a person’s endocannabinoid levels are replenishedthus having a feeling of normalcy.
A healthy person, on the other hand, may use the same productand feel nothing at all or very different effects and thus, buildtolerance.
THC VS CBD
Choosing the path to hemp that is right for you can be overwhelming, regardless if you’re a first-time or returning user. W!NK™ is dedicated to empowering women who want to enjoy the therapeutic effects of cannabis and hemp-derived CBD products. Understanding your journey is a large part of your life with hemp.
The education is vast, but we're happy to guide you through the basics: CBD and THC are the two most prominent cannabinoids found in Cannabis, the plant genus that includes both CBD (hemp) + THC (marijuana).
Both interact with the body through the endocannabinoid system — an important physiologic system involved in establishing + maintaining human health by regulating a wide array of functions — some of which include: pain, mood, memory, immune response, sleep + cycles of cellular life.
The Cannabis plant contains 60+ naturally occurring, active compounds called cannabinoids. Of those 60+ compounds, Cannabidiol (CBD) and Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are the most common. The THC cannabinoid is responsible for producing the mind-altering psychoactive effects known as “the high”.
Unlike THC, the CBD cannabinoid is non-intoxicating yet still maintains the same therapeutic benefits of Cannabis without “the high”. Cannabis plants are divided into two crops: hemp (also known as Industrial Hemp) and marijuana — each with different cannabinoid ratios.

WHAT IS THC?
THC is psychoactive & you will become intoxicated.
THC is responsible for most of the physiological effects that each user feels, but additional terpene and minor cannabinoid molecules accompanying it can modulate these effects considerably to a mind-altering capacity. Contains on average 18%+ THC.
